The Irish Village dropped its more familiar Gaelic persona for a decidely Bavarian-themed event on Thursday, celebrating German hops festival Oktoberfest. Empty stomachs were quickly filled by a Dhs150 buffet of sausage-shaped comfort food, and there were plenty of Bavarian beverages on tap. Needless to say, the crowd thirstily obliged as they mingled in The IV’s balmy al-fresco setting, which tinkled all night long with the sound of clinking glasses. Specially flown in from Germany and dressed in traditional lederhosen, The Pik As – the seven-piece oompah band – put a smile on many a face with German party favourites and even rocked out the chicken dance.
